Ep. 178: Donald Trump is the Leader of a Political Cult

Episode description

Steven Hassan is the guest on this week's special fundraising month episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is one of the world's foremost experts on cults and mind control. 

Steven Hassan is the author of several bestselling books including Combating Cult Mind Control: The #1 Best Selling Guide to Protection, Rescue, and Recovery from Destructive Cults, Releasing the Bonds: Empowering People to Think for Themselves, and Freedom of Mind: Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults & Beliefs.

He and Chauncey discuss how Donald Trump is a political cult leader and if it is possible to free Trump's followers from his thrall. Steven also shares his thoughts on the power of social media and advertising over free will. He also offers up some information that may be new to many people: as a child Donald Trump was raised in a church whose leaders used mind control techniques against their followers.  

In this week's episode, Chauncey highlights how Trump's White House is corrupt and likely a criminal enterprise. The most recent example? Jared Kushner receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from Citibank and Apollo Global Group. Chauncey also connects the dots between Trump's abuse of power as a means to make money from the presidency, the latest revelations about Kushner and the conflict between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and General Smedley Butler's warnings about war profiteers and other gangster capitalists. 

At the end of this week's podcast Chauncey also wonders if the ammosexuals who go to church to get their AR-15 assault rifles "blessed" are somehow related to the underground mutants who worship a neutron bomb in the movie Beneath the Planet of the Apes.
